Birthday Card

Good day folks. Hope all is well with you and yours.
My card today is for one of our twin Grandsons.   I'm hoping he likes the image as much as I do. 
   Although I'm not happy with my colouring I do like this cas design.
 I coloured Kenny K's Col. Macallan  with copics and highlighted with pencils and gamsol.  
Once I use the gamsol I have to remind myself not to go back with my copics as this will ruin the nib!   

Now, how could you not love this face.....such a clown!  
 He wants you to think he is really tough...but that's not the case.  
 He dressed up as a pilot to make us think he flies in the air after that frisbee...but we all know better :)

Inside was finished using the same Basic Grey papers as the front.  
I did print a miniature Col. Macallan the bottom of the sentiment layer.
Spellbinders Sprockets die used on the front
Sentiment from my stash.

Entering the following challenge:
Thanks for your visit and your lovely comments are always appreciated.

This really made me smile. We have an English Bulldog named Lulu, who probably wouldn't mind hooking up with this fella. I like the colors you chose the paper and that little gear is just the perfect touch. Awesome!
